Description of Transylvania
The first in the Transylvania series is one of Polarware's best known games.
The plot is not very unique: as the name suggests, the story takes place in land of the vampires and involves the evil vampires, ghosts, and the like. Your task is to prevent the archevil vampire from ruling Transylvania.
A decent game, if not very original, and actually has a robust parser that understands synonyms of the most commonly-used verbs. Remember to run away from evil creatures when they (randomly) find you :)

The vampire won’t appear so I can kill him. I just keep wandering all through the castle ad he never appears.

To answer some questions here.
To get the graphics press enter.
To save the game you go "save game". It asks 1, 2, or 3. You type whatever save file you want. It while say "I don't understand even if it has worked. To go back the save game type "restore game". It will ask you which file and you reply with whatever file you already have saved it with.

Okay, but how do I save my game in the DOS version? I type in "save" and get a message asking "save 1,2, or 3?" I type in a number and the game says "I don't understand". I might actually enjoy this game more if I could save my progress.
